State Department environmental review OKs Keystone XL pipeline

January 31, 2014 3:30PM ET Updated 6:05PM ET

Official say release of final environmental statement is ‘not a decision but another step in the process’

The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle Friday when the U.S. State Department reported no major environmental obections to the proposed $7 billion project.

The State Department’s Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement is a blow to environmentalists fighting against the project, which they hope President Barack Obama will block.

Critics of the pipeline plan say it would harm the environment and hasten climate change by promoting oil-harvesting methods in Alberta that produce high levels of carbon dioxide emissions.
